Thailand your way Travel with my friend Nang, who is a great nature, birding, and cultural guide.Town of Stories Short-term travellers arrive in Pai to find a beautiful town which has some eccentric but interesting folks and places.Dry vegetables are worth much more in the market and the storage facilities give the locals a way to spread their profit and risk over the next several months.Makkha Bucha weekend on 9 Feb and Songkran in mid-April were the last Thai tourist bursts of the season.I switch out of tourist mode and stay in Pai for months years, renting a house long-term and taking only occasional trips out of town.General information, the gay scene in Chiang Mai is always changing and information on the internet is often out of date so, to help gay visitors, we have included an up to date guide to most of the gay venues in Chiang Mai.As if to outdo the Horrific Bangkok Thai Swarm, as the Pai fad started to ebb a tiny bit for domestic tourists starting around, a new demographic arrived.But, until very recently, not Pai.The results, however, have been negligible: "Whole towns are now known primarily for their sex business claimed one source who has worked with the United Nations Development Program on a survey of HIV/aids awareness in northern Burmas Shan State.Then testing again an hour later you may see the opposite results.A meal at a street vendor can be had for as little as 1 per plate.The show comes to a grinding halt as Brittanys voice warps from a high-pitch to a slow groan.

And they seem to have gotten an unbelievable amount of press off of it, because now every single Thai tourist feels irresistably compelled to photograph themself in front of the bank.
Couldn't they use a little teak somewhere?
